Update on Sandy Clean-up
Service-oriented businesses in the North East are facing a battle on three fronts. They are coming to terms with how super storm Sandy has impacted them personally and psychologically. Then, they must run their businesses, whether it’s junk hauling, restoration, sanitation, or another service offering. This is a round-the-clock endeavor! And finally, there is continual need for community support that fleets of trucks and manpower can provide.
Snapshot: 1-800-GOT-JUNK? crews from across the tri states region are supporting local supply drives by collecting donation items, providing storage for supplies, and transporting them to those who are in the hardest hit areas.
Snapshot: If you or anyone else you know lives in Suffolk County, Long Island and needs supplies, wants to help out with donations for others, or requires junk removed from your property, call the local 1-800-GOT-JUNK? office at (631) 750-9181. You will receive a $25 discount toward future junk removal if you donate clothes, blankets or non-perishable food. Please note that no purchase is necessary now or in future. The public is also encouraged to donate baby food, unwanted cribs and pet supplies. In addition, everyone who requires junk removal because of Sandy will receive a 10% discount. Suffolk County only.
